Sun all day and hot on po­ten­tial

Southern Real Estate Guide - - Front Page -

To­day’s shrewd buyer is af­ter value and prop­er­ties that add fur­ther value, so this home with its big per­mit­ted sleep­out, large deck and con­ser­va­tory, and fur­ther po­ten­tial to de­velop down­stairs could well fit the bill.

The ad­dress is 1 Capella Place, lo­cated be­tween Wat­tle Downs and Manukau Golf Course, which can be seen from the house.

Within a short walk from the lo­cal shops and Clay­ton Park Pri­mary School, it oc­cu­pies a 610 square me­tre cor­ner sec­tion so it has plenty of street frontage and room to park sev­eral ve­hi­cles off the road. How­ever, the rear gar­den is to­tally fenced, so there’s plenty of pri­vacy too.

The weath­er­board home has three bed­rooms in the main body of the house, while a path off the big rear deck leads to a large sleep­out. This is di­vided into two rooms, and with full power and phone con­nec­tions, would make an ideal work-from-home base or ex­tra ac­com­mo­da­tion for fam­ily.

In­side the house, all three bed­rooms have smartly pol­ished tim­ber floors and builtin wardrobes, the main bed­room hav­ing a dou­ble.

A cen­tral hall leads into an open plan liv­ing and din­ing area, con­nected by a bar par­ti­tion to a good-sized kitchen which has been mod­ernised in re­cent times.

It has an elec­tric bench­top hob, range­hood, stain­less steel wall oven, stain­less twin sink, pantry, and lots of bench space.

It’s close to all the en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas – the lounge with its wood­burner for win­ter; the cov­ered rear deck which has been strength­ened so that a spa can be fit­ted; and the alu­minium framed con­ser­va­tory. This front room gets all the af­ter­noon sun and has a brand new roof – so be­tween the deck and con­ser­va­tory, there’s an all­day spot for re­lax­ing.

There is also a stan­dard bath­room, sep­a­rate toi­let, and a good sized laun­dry.

Un­der­neath the house, where there used to be a garage, we find more rum­pus and stor­age space. Th­ese rooms are also wired for phone and Sky, so there is plenty of po­ten­tial.

A large lockup gar­den shed, and dry wood stor­age un­der the deck, com­plete the pic­ture.

The ven­dors are re­lo­cat­ing to Aus­tralia, so are se­ri­ous about sell­ing – the prop­erty is listed at $ 329,000.

View­ing by ap­point­ment only. Con­tact Daphne Bom­bardieri or Johnny Cleven at Har­veys Ma­nurewa, phone 2666 400; Daphne mob 0274 790 267, Johnny 0274 816 422, a/ h 267 5397.

Space and po­ten­tial: The three-bed­room weath­er­board home is sup­ple­mented by a large sleep­out, cov­ered deck, con­ser­va­tory plus space un­der the house to de­velop.
